Famicom World


Nintendo Co., Ltd., used a series of HVC product codes to catalogue what Family Computer items it produced, including systems, cartridges, and more. “HVC” stands for Home Video Computer. The number of different codes are unknown, but they include numbers and letters and can be a length of five, six, eight or 10 characters. There is some speculation out there suggesting some of the number codes between 001 and 100 were never used. Also, some of the products had more than one code, which were usually a number code and a letter code, and sometimes a mixture of both in one code.

(Note that Nintendo officially released Famicom products in Hong Kong. The codes on those products were the same but with “HKG” added to the end of each code (such as HVC-001HKG). Also note that not all of Nintendo’s codes began with “HVC.” For anything related to the Disk System, almost all of the codes began with “FMC.”)
